Overall

- The food on this ship was shocking. Typically it was to a standard I wouldn’t accept if I was cooking at home. On the plus side, nobody I knew gained weight from eating on the cruise. Deserts were limited and when available, nothing to write home about!

- The only drinks available were water, tea or coffee. Some juices were available with breakfast

Cabin Review

the cabins were fine and the beds comfortable. the cabin staff were terrific and the standard of hygiene was high. this was important given the vulnerability of the guests.

The staff who had the best English were engaged in serving alcohol. This is no accident.

Port Reviews

La Coruna

skipped right to the end of the long walk

Bristol (Avonmouth)

Great day in the city

Cobh (Cork)

this was a terrific embarkation point. Unfortunately the ship was only there for a few hours and so visitors didn't get the enjoy trips as much as they could have

Gibraltar

went shopping with my mother who LOVE shopping. A lovely town and sadly not enough time there

Las Palmas (Gran Canaria)

went shopping

Lisbon

We did the Hop on Hop off which wasn't as good as in other cities but the best way to see the city.
